I remember one particular time, when I was about 6 or 7 years old, we went to Meme & Gramp’s house in Clayton (N.M.)and Meme was making this chili. After dishing it up, piping hot, she topped each bowl with a squirt of ketchup and a splash of white vinegar - a little bit of the “sweet & sour” effect. I still love to eat my chili this way.

How to Make Homemade Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown hamburger meat in a large pot, drain and return to pot.
  2. Dice onion and add to hamburger.
  3. Add taco seasoning, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to meat/onion, and stir well, cooking the seasonings into the meat.
  4. After cooking for about 10 minutes, add tomato juice and sugar (optional).
